Looking for Jerry Band rec's, all configurations. Top-notch soundboards only. What are the very best "must have" shows?

Thanks!

3/18/78 & 11/26/88 are two of my BEST favorites...(I torrented both from LL, i tink). Both are SB's also. Could be that 3/18/78 is a commercial release, not sure.

Here are the top three that I listen to on a regular basis:

As Dhamma said, 3.18.78 is my favorite. The energy is right on.

5.5.82, just Garcia and Kahn acoustic at the Oregon State Pen. Widely available. I grew up in Salem, OR so maybe that's why I gravitate towards it.

I happen to have this gem on my laptop. Amazing sound quality. This will get you started on your quest.

While digging fenceposts last night I was listening to a Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band from 87. I'd say I'm down with anything from that JGAB formation. There were a lot of special shows from the Garcia Grisman collaboration.

What, no audience sources? Yes, i know of your predilection for hi-quality soundboards, but w/JGB related material, you'd really be missing out on some outstanding sources/shows. I'll e-mail you ...

There is an excellent soundboard of a 1988 show at the Wiltern in LA that is my favorite recording of this band. 1988-11-26 - can't remember where I got it. Lovely vocals.

Cliff,

someone lists 4-17-93 in one of the posts. If the entire show is not your cup of tea I do recommend you cut to the Everybody needs Somebody. One of those "great" moments to say the least.

Not a soundboard and no claim that it's an all-time show, so this is exactly what you're looking for: 1978-10-07. I just figure you should have at least one "Let Me Roll It" and this show has the last one. Plus it's got Keith and Donna and Maria (I think). This is not your end-of-the-line-with-the-Dead Keith - much more lively.



Bonus take from McCartney.

I asked the same question a few months back, and here's what folks recommended. Lots of AUDs, essentially. I think if you want topnotch sound quality, you may want to buy the Pure Jerry series. Anyway, here's what our friends suggested as the best:

May 7-11, 1992 with Garcia and Grisman is a terrific run at The Warfield

Mar 18, 1978 Warner Theater, Washington, DC is Wineland's "hands down favorite"

This IS a SBD, but it's still pretty shoddy quality, and several songs have cuts in them. Yet it rocks like a mutha, so...

The "very best must have shows" are almost all audience recordings. Why let that stop you? 3-17-78 (FM recording),3-19-78, 2-22-80, 3-8-80, 6-16-82, 5-31-83 and the shows from Aug 10, 1984 to 8-16-84 are all excellent audience recordings. I don't know what I'd do without these shows.

I listened to 5-31-83 this afternoon. It's pretty awesome, and suggested listening for anyone who thinks Jerry "jumped the shark" in 1977.
